Ep 25 Our 'Where Are the Other African American Libertarian Women?' Friend - ft. Zuri Davis

Nobody Expects The Dismal Science

In this week’s banger of an episode, the guys have the honor of hosting Zuri Davis, a former criminal justice reporter at Reason Magazine and presently the Executive Producer for NODEHAUS Media’s upcoming film, The Expungement Experiment.Together they discuss a history of racism and its toleration in the United States - as well as the libertarian movement - and what does it say that Zuri is probably the most famous living African American libertarian woman? Beyond the past, they collectively reflect on the horrific effects of modern-day incidents like Richard Spencer’s unofficial invitation to the International Students for Liberty Conference and the previously unheard victims of #YALtoo.They examine what actions individuals - libertarian or otherwise - can take to make the world a more comfortingly inclusive, less prejudicial place and talk about other important topics, like how Yoda is overrated.If you, like us, enjoy Zuri, you can follow her and her work @ProperlyZuri.If you are interested in further reading on the history of racism in the United States and its criminal justice system, you can also check out @Wyman856’s detailed post examining racial disparities in the criminal justice system, which includes many studies where racism is the only plausible causal mechanism behind these disparities. It is in many ways a data-driven letter to his high school self that he wishes he could’ve read back then.https://laowyatt.net/is-the-american-criminal-justice-system-racist/And as always, if you enjoyed this conversation and would be interested in hearing more like it, please rate, review and subscribe to Nobody Expects the Dismal Science at your favorite podcast hosting app. The guys can also be reached @nobodydismal and emailed at NobodyExpectsTheDismalScience@gmail.com

How Zuri Davis Went From 'Baby Neocon' to Bold Libertarian

Stephen Perkins Podcast

Zuri Davis (@Zuri_Davis) is someone who I have known about and followed for a while, but I never had the chance to speak to her at length until now. I’ve always been encouraged by her energetic personality, especially when she’s talking about the issues she is passionate about. On this week’s episode, I talked to Zuri about a number of topics: her upbringing, her time in college and how she went from a “baby neocon” to emerging libertarian, the beginning of her career in media, and the issues that she believes we will be pondering about in the future. Zuri’s question for you: Why are you a conservative and what are you fighting for? Tweet her your answer. Links and references from this episode: Zuri’s writing at Rare Books Zuri recommends The Law The American Cause Conscience of a Conservative
